– Is the February cold snap climate modeling’s stagflation? Probably not, but expertise from the comment section is thanked in advance for explaining why. Are there supposed to be days of record breaking low temperatures across huge swaths of the North American continent if the center of the temperature distribution is accelerating its movement towards increasingly warmer temperatures? Is part of the semantic shift from “global warming” to “climate change” a necessary improvement to account for a wider distribution, or is the average temperature distribution not a normal one?
There is something annoyingly unfortunate and harmful to the cause–or poetically just depending on your vantage point–about less reliable methods of power generation like wind and solar having replaced more reliable methods like natural gas and coal fire over the years for the purpose of reducing warming going kaput during an unexpected surge of cold weather and then having to be rescued by the old dirty methods that cause the warming that is inconveniently absent at the moment.
– The Cruz craziness is a good indication of how the establishment is concerned about rogue elements in the junior party positioning themselves as avatars of the working class fighting against the government-corporatist oligarchy. Leaving Texas was a boneheaded move for the senator to make. The optics are terrible. Of course it’s not as though he’d be fixing the power grid if he’d stayed in Houston. That’s what makes in an optical blunder–it exclusively concerns appearances. Beyond the tabloid content, though, it betrays a real growing concern among the ruling class.
– To the bad faith assumption that white gentiles who accept the idea of human biodiversity necessarily believe there is a genetic hierarchy with blacks at the bottom, is it also assumed these people view Asians and Jews as superior to themselves? The thinking is really lazy. That’s what makes it bad faith, I guess. Within the broader category of “HBD realists” there are a subset who believe in racial hierarchies, but do most? Do many? And among those who do, are fertility and survivability the metrics for assessing positions on that hierarchy? These are mostly rhetorical questions, I think.
